Elsie: I do know, in the present day is definitely our final episode of December, and we can be again in January, so I do know, I can’t consider that is the final episode both.

Emma: It’s wild. Yeah, the yr actually slipped by. I really feel like this season too, like This fall vacation season, particularly proper after Halloween, time simply speeds proper up and it’s simply bizarre. 

Elsie: I really feel prefer it was one of many longest years of my life, so it’s like totally different for everybody. Effectively, I moved, I renovated, . There have been some components of it that felt very, , it was like an enormous yr.

Emma: Yeah, it was an enormous yr, an enormous transitional yr for you. Sure. Transferring is rather a lot. Transferring takes up a lot house in life. It’s surprising. All proper. Effectively, earlier than we dive into our favourite issues from the yr, I believed I’d simply share one thing on vacation. So this really occurred some weeks in the past. However I needed to say the very first time that Oscar met Santa as a result of he’s solely two and a half. So we’ve by no means performed a Santa factor earlier than they usually occurred to have a Santa. Elsie and I had taken our children to this carriage experience in her neighborhood they usually had been simply having little Christmassy issues within the neighborhood they usually had a Santa. I believe it’s only a gentleman from the neighborhood, however he was so nice. 

Elsie: He was a really lifelike Santa, he was very into it. 

Emma: Yeah, he was into it and he was nice with the youngsters. It was actually cute. It was very cute. Nevertheless it was identical to in somebody’s like someones adorned shed behind their home type of factor. I don’t need to say shed, as a result of that sounds prefer it’s not cute. It was really very cute. 

Elsie: It was very cute. 

Emma: However yeah, it’s identical to somewhat indifferent storage. 

Elsie: It was a really healthful little neighborhood factor to ring in Christmas. They did it in November nonetheless, which I believed was cute as a result of it put the youngsters within the spirit and I bought to put on my huge pink coat and we bought to go on the carriage experience. Anyway, discuss Oscar. 

Emma: And it was nonetheless type of good exterior. It was chilly, nevertheless it was like not dying.

Elsie: It was stunning. 

Emma: Yeah, it was a stunning day. So anyway, I didn’t understand how Santa would go, as a result of Oscar tends to be fairly shy, and timid. And identical to a cautious child. However I additionally was like, oh, we’re going with Nova and Marigold, his cousins, and he’ll see them, , sitting up there and telling Santa what they need. So I believe he’ll be into it, as a result of he’ll be like, oh, I’m not as intimidated, my pals are doing this. That’s all the time useful. It’s useful for me. So anyway, and we had walked there from Elsie’s home And any time Oscar and I are strolling wherever, our primary exercise is choosing up rocks and sticks. So any free rocks or good sticks round, Oscar’s gonna decide these up and people change into Oscar’s property till he discards them sooner or later. And he actually loves his rocks and sticks. It’s a really critical factor. There’s been instances I like, subtly removed a stick, ’trigger we’ve been amassing a complete bunch, like being on an extended stroll or one thing. And he will get upset. So I do know not to try this. Anyway, so he had a rock, he’d already picked one up, and it was like his rock, he’s holding it, it’s now his consolation rock that he’s holding, and he sits on Santa’s lap, and I don’t suppose he mentioned something. He didn’t really say something he needed for Christmas. I believe Santa requested him at one level, Do you want automobiles? And he like, nodded his head vigorously, sure. And he was identical to smiling however being, , type of shy. However then as they had been leaving, getting off the bench, Santa was like, take a sweet cane. So all of them took a sweet cane. After which Oscar walked again to Santa and simply handed him the rock. Like, didn’t say something, simply put it in Santa’s hand. I noticed it and, , Santa took the rock. However I used to be identical to, wow, that’s, you don’t have any concept what meaning to this child. As a result of he by no means provides me rocks, he loves his rocks. As soon as a rock is his. So I felt like he was type of attempting to say thanks to Santa, however he didn’t have any phrases, so he gave him the rock and I simply liked it. It was cute. 

Elsie: It was so cute. Yeah, it was enjoyable. It was so candy. After which we went on a carriage experience round, it’s type of identical to round a few blocks, however we bought to move by the pink home, wave at our grandma, and yeah our aunt was on the porch and he or she bought our grandma and it was so cute.

Emma: Yeah, it was actually cute. 

Elsie: It was identical to a really glad little day and I used to be actually glad we bought to try this. And it’s so enjoyable doing issues like that with Oscar now. 

Emma: Yeah, once we bought off the carriage he was like, extra, extra! Yeah, I’d take him off. He was like, needed to do it once more. Like no, buddy, there’s a line. It was cute. He liked it.

What was your favourite? 

Emma: So I needed to actually slim it down. Trigger I really had a fantastic e book yr, so many good books this yr, however I made a decision on the one which rose to the highest as I like serious about all those we’ve learn for the podcast. And I additionally publish on my Instagram, many of the books that I’m studying. So if you happen to ever need to know what I’m studying, it’s on there often. And after I determined to select of every little thing, though it was such a superb e book right here was I actually liked This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub, which is type of like somewhat little bit of time journey, it’s like a daughter whose father is ageing and he or she’s coming to phrases with he’s possible going to move. And yeah, it’s bought time journey, it’s bought lots of like, simply studying to understand life and have a look at it a distinct method. I believe this makes the e book sound type of critical, and I believe it has some critical themes. Nevertheless it’s additionally only a actually enjoyable page-turner and I actually loved it. 

Elsie: I believed it was a extremely good e book additionally.

Emma: Yeah, I really like that writer. I’ve learn all her books and I really like them. 

Elsie: Okay, I couldn’t decide between two. So, I’ve undoubtedly talked about these already, however no matter. Okay, so my first favourite e book of 2023 was Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. I don’t suppose I’ll ever learn one other e book identical to it. I instantly learn her different e book afterward and it was fully totally different. I simply really feel prefer it has a particular one thing that’s like as soon as in a lifetime in a e book. So yeah, if you happen to haven’t learn it, it’s lots of stuff about video video games. You don’t need to be interested by video video games your self. It’s extra concerning the creativity of them making the video video games, which I used to be very into. Yeah. It was simply one thing I by no means thought I’d be obsessive about. And it’s just like the prettiest cowl too, in the entire bookstore. It’s identical to a shocking cowl. And lots of instances I don’t really feel like that matches like how a lot I really like a e book after I decide them for the covers, however this one, it’s every little thing.

Emma: Yeah. That e book guidelines. 

Elsie: After which my different favourite one is The Wishing Recreation by Meg Schaefer. I identical to, I don’t know, I believe it was the homes, Elise despatched it to me initially and it was like, she despatched me an image of a web page that was like, describing like a secret passageway and I used to be like, okay, instantly sure, I instantly ordered it. It has lots of stuff about artwork in it, it has lots of stuff about kids’s literature, after which it has lots of magical home stuff, and actually, like, the e book isn’t good, it’s a bizarre e book. It’s bizarre. I don’t know. It actually bought me in a particular method. I hope they undoubtedly make a film of it. I believe that that will be a complete nice. And I believe they might like even one up it somewhat bit extra. 

Emma: I’d like to see Clock Island. Actually, I’m like, I really like Willy Wonka, however I’m like, cease remaking that and make this. 

Elsie: Oh, I’m so excited concerning the Chalamet Wonka. I believe this is able to make an incredible children’ film. It will hit me in lots of good locations. And I believe it was her debut novel as properly, which is so uncommon. 

Emma: I really feel like I learn within the e book that she both is from or is at present residing in Columbia, Missouri, which isn’t very removed from the place we’re proper now. I don’t know. I all the time discover when persons are from Missouri. Missouri? Me too. 

Elsie: It’s fairly noticeable. Yeah. No, that’s cool. Okay. So yeah, that was my favourite e book of the yr. I agree, it was a fantastic e book yr. And there have been so many extra. I believe I’m going to make a Reel of all my favourite books of the yr as a result of there was much more.

Emma: It was a superb e book yr. I really feel like lots of nice stuff got here out after which I simply bought lots of good suggestions and it was a fantastic e book yr. Wanting ahead to subsequent yr. Okay, what a few favourite magnificence merchandise that you just tried this yr? So this is sort of a new to you possibly or I don’t know one thing.

Elsie: I’m really scared. I might need mentioned this final yr, however I’m too lazy to look it up, however I might need. Okay, so that is just like the one factor that I all the time purchase is Moondew eye cream from Herbivore. It’s like this little purple eye cream. And if you happen to’ve ever had darkish circles or puffy eyes. You simply need to strive it. It’s actually good.

Emma: I like it. I like all their stuff too. I like that model. So, mine is one I’ve undoubtedly talked about earlier than. I really feel like I don’t shut up about it, however I don’t know, possibly I don’t discuss it as a lot as that. I don’t know. However, I really like my UV LED nail dryer. I purchased a nail dryer as a result of one of many final instances I used to be in a salon, which I don’t get my nails performed all that always, possibly a couple of times a yr, simply being trustworthy. I don’t make the time for it. I get my lashes. That’s all I’ve time for anyway. However I used to be like, , these aren’t like loopy fancy. I wager I may purchase one among these on Amazon. That’s what was going by way of my thoughts. So then I bought on Amazon and I purchased one which had good opinions, nevertheless it wasn’t tremendous expensive or something. And now I simply use it as I’m like watching TV and paint my nails and I like it and it does make your nails dry method sooner as a result of I’ve that factor the place like I paint my nails at night time, , my son’s already in mattress. I’m watching TV and generally it’s not too lengthy earlier than I fall asleep. And it’s so annoying once you get blanket wrinkles in your nail polish the subsequent morning. So anyway, I believe this makes an enormous distinction and it’s like 20 or 30 bucks. It was like nothing. So you can most likely purchase two, however I simply do one after the other, ? 

Elsie: Yeah. You’ll need to hyperlink the precise one on our present notes that this can be, yeah, we’ll put all these things within the hyperlink.

Emma: It’s very random and it’s very, it feels very like, do you really want one among these at house? However I believe it’s nice. And it’s so annoying once you take the time to color your nails after which they get tousled, like in your blankets at night time. 

Elsie: I believe you’ve offered it. I believe you’ve offered it. I believe that persons are going to need that now.

Emma: It’s price it. It’s well worth the 25 or no matter it’s. And it appears like your front room’s a spa now. 

Elsie: I really like issues that make your home really feel like a spa. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s simply random little issues which are actually not costly, however make you are feeling such as you’re fancy, that’s like my wheelhouse. Okay, what about the perfect finances finds? So that is one thing 20 {dollars} or underneath. 

Elsie: Okay. I’ve two they usually’re each free. So, I simply couldn’t consider something that was underneath 20. Two free issues and these are each wonderful, you need to undoubtedly strive them. So, the primary one is Libby app. I do know I point out this yearly, however only for individuals who haven’t heard it. It’s an app the place you possibly can put in your library card and you’ll try audiobooks at no cost. And generally you do have to attend somewhat bit for them, however then it’s like this little present, ? You simply see what’s appeared. I believe you possibly can put about ten or so in at a time that you just’re ready for. Yeah. I all the time have mine full. I all the time am like getting new books and , it’s like if you happen to’re not within the temper for it, you possibly can say ship later and yeah, it’s good as a result of it additionally cuts down on the variety of audiobooks that I purchase as a result of I’ve learn lots of audiobooks. So I often attempt to use Libby up first and generally you may get them immediately that day, and simply begin listening to it. After which generally, , you need to wait a number of weeks and that’s high-quality too. After which, yeah, generally books aren’t on there or no matter, after which I take advantage of Audible for that. So, Libby app, for positive. It’s such a fantastic factor. And if you happen to ever simply need one thing proper then, like how I discovered Tom Hanks, I began studying Tom Hanks’s new novel, and I discovered it simply by like trying to find books that you can hire proper then. Like they’ve a complete web page of books which are obtainable now. So you possibly can simply type of scroll by way of and discover one thing. And lots of books, like the primary time I learn an Emily Henry e book and lots of different books, I discovered that method too, identical to, I would like one thing now, and I’ll simply see what’s.

Emma: Yeah, that’s a superb search function.

Elsie: Yeah. After which the second can also be an app. It’s known as Radio with 5 Os. My husband discovered this for me, and it’s so cool. You’re gonna freak out. Like, you’ve by no means heard of this? 

Emma: No. 

Elsie: Okay. So, it’s an app the place you possibly can select a location and a yr, and you’ll hear, or possibly it’s even like a date. However you possibly can hear music that was taking part in on the radio at the moment, like, simply from this app. And you are able to do the entire world. So it’s like a really cool factor to make use of for kids since our youngsters are from China. It’s like, that’s, , tremendous cool. It’s a cool factor once you’re studying about different nations, once you’re, , such as you’ve simply watched a film about, , England or no matter, you possibly can see what they had been listening to on the radio then.

Emma: Yeah, that’s very fascinating. 

Elsie: And it’s simply very cool as a result of like I really like 60s music and I discover it laborious to maintain discovering new issues. Like there’s so many issues from that point which are tremendous well-known nonetheless after which lots of them that like, nobody talks about anymore. So it’s like laborious to search out proper once more. So yeah, I discovered it fascinating for that, and it’s only a totally different strategy to take heed to music, particularly if you happen to like previous music or a sure period of music or a sure nation, any of these issues.

Emma: And it’s an app and what was it? It’s known as radio? 

Elsie: Radio with 5 O’s.

Emma: It’s 5 O’s.

Elsie: Yeah, the icon is pink with like somewhat black space so that you’ll see it and also you’ll get it. It’s free. I believe it could have an non-obligatory subscription, however you should use it at no cost too. So it’s nice. 

Emma: I like it. Okay, mine’s very totally different. Mine is, I purchased this like a pink cloth shaver on Amazon. And principally, I really like thrifting, and possibly the primary factor I thrift is sweaters. However generally you see a phenomenal sweater, nevertheless it’s already type of like pilling somewhat, and also you’re like, is it saveable? Is it, I don’t know. So I purchased this cloth shaver, and I used it on like a sweater vest. I had drifted, and it made it appear like possibly not new, however like actually good in comparison with the way it seemed earlier than. So, anyway, I used to be like, that is good, as a result of I are inclined to thrift lots of sweaters, and simply my sweaters, too, will capsule over time, or no matter. And you should use it on couches or issues like that, too, however I actually largely simply apply it to garments. 

Elsie: Additionally, like, sweatshirts. Like, I all the time get it in, like, the armpit of my sweatshirts and stuff. 

Emma: Something you put on rather a lot and also you wash rather a lot, , over time it occurs, so anyway. 

Elsie: Yeah. No, these work. Everybody must have a material shaver. It does hold your garments wanting newer for longer. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s good. Okay, what a few favourite splurge that was so price it? 

Elsie: Effectively, okay, so we moved to a brand new home this yr, and I’m not gonna lie, my entire yr was splurging. It simply was, like, it was an enormous spinning yr on bills that we gained’t need to repeat once more for a really very long time. Which I believe is how shifting is, and why it’s unhealthy to do it yearly. Okay, my two huge splurges of the yr that had been so price it are, initially, artwork. Earlier than this yr I collected somewhat little bit of authentic artwork, however this yr, I collected rather a lot. And I type of made it like my new factor, as a result of it was like, that is our house that we’re planning to remain in for a very long time, and I need to, , make each nook and cranny particular, and I additionally purchased a ton of classic artwork. So yeah, a ton of authentic artwork, a ton of classic artwork, and it type of grew to become like my new factor the place if we, , had one thing we had been celebrating, or a birthday, or the vacations, it’s like, as an alternative of another type of fancy factor, like a bag, or sneakers, or one thing I’d have checked out prior to now, I’m wanting extra in the direction of artwork, now. Which is thrilling, and it’s simply actually totally different. I believe it’s enjoyable. 

Emma: Yeah, no, I like it. We had been speaking about it, and I used to be like, oh, I believe you need to do a publish for our weblog that’s like, all of the artwork in my home. Or I don’t know what you’re going to call the weblog publish. As a result of primarily it’s like, there’s all these wonderful unbiased artists which are in your house. After which additionally, the place to search out nice classic artwork can also be superior. However yeah, it’s simply supporting people who find themselves making stunning issues. It’s actually cool.

Elsie: Yeah, I like it. And my second splurge of the yr was wallpaper. We did a lot wallpaper, and naturally, you need to pay for the wallpaper, and also you additionally need to pay for the set up. I imply, you possibly can study to do your individual wallpaper, and I believe it’s so cool for anybody who does. However for me, I’d by no means. 

Emma: That isn’t my talent set, nevertheless it’s very cool if it’s yours. 

Elsie: I don’t like jobs the place I really feel prefer it needs to be good, and I’ve to study one thing that folks receives a commission some huge cash to do.

Emma: And if you happen to mess up, it’s type of costly, as a result of I’ve to purchase extra wallpaper probably and it’s fairly expensive. I’ll paint all day lengthy. 

Elsie: I’m simply afraid I’d really feel like I needed to settle for it wanting type of unhealthy simply because such as you made your mattress, now you need to lie in it type of angle. So anyway, no matter I believe it’s very very price it to pay for set up and I’ll hyperlink the wallpapers that we did this yr. However, it brings a lot to a house. I don’t suppose our house Oh, it had the monkey wallpaper, it had one wallpaper and we purchased it. However now, it’s most likely, what, greater than 5? Perhaps getting nearer to 10? I believe ten is the precise quantity, the place I need to be. So yeah, I really like spending cash on wallpaper and I simply suppose it’s like, it’s so customized, it’s so basic for the period of house we’re doing. There’s simply nothing prefer it. I like painted partitions too, however, there’s simply nothing like the sensation of an fascinating heat, stunning wallpaper.

Emma: No, the wallpaper’s cool. I’m glad it’s again. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay. What was your splurge? 

Emma: Effectively, my spending yr for shifting was final yr. So this yr I actually didn’t purchase something loopy, to be trustworthy. However I did purchase myself some Doc Barton sandals in the summertime, and I wore all of them summer season lengthy.
